In preperation for 3rd black I've written three letters on top of my technique list: TNT
It stands for TODAY NOT TOMORROW.
Today, I'm running all my forms twice and all my techniques (at least) twice. There isn't a day of the week where I can't put a half-hour down to practice a few techniques. Yes it's hard, but I know I hold everyday routines more strictly than more infrequent ones.
I'd ask for luck, but I don't need luck. I need people to inquire what I've done to reach my goal today.
